Beer Ladies Podcast


Alewives and Demons

Season 2, Ep. 6

Thandi, Christina, Lisa, and Carolyn unpack some examples of medievally maligned alewives in 1400s art and literature. Where did tropes about alewives and demons come from? What can we tease out of carvings and paintings in churches? Who was writing those poems? Join the ladies in wishing for heavenly lakes of cask ale, with or without old-timey adjuncts.
